VPS Hosting Clarified

To satisfy the need for affordably priced, but reliable hosting services, companies presented a midway website hosting environment - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual emulation of a hosting server that works exactly like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more advanced than any shared web hosting solution. At the same time, as many accounts are hosted on the same physical machine and each person pays for their account, the price for a VPS hosting plan is markedly lower than the price for a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS hosting plan is slightly more expensive than the most powerful shared website hosting package, but its resources excel by far those of the shared hosting account.

Each separate account is insulated from the remaining accounts on the web hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own Operating System and be rebooted autonomously from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are managed via a virtualization console where users can have a glimpse at all running processes and terminate or restart them, update server-side software applications, see the consumed and the available system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only a few instances of software programs used for setting up and administering VPS packages. They have various requirements with respect to the central processing unit architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, etc. For instance, KVM can operate on machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a web server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and allows both of these OSs to be activated on the concrete VPS hosting servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Solutions

The virtualization panel lends the customer the power to administer the VPS hosting autonomously from the hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their customer support team to restart a particular service or restore a backup. If the client is not proficient, though, we have a voluntary upgrade that incorporates OS and software installation and update operations, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a bunch of VPS datacenter locations to pick from: America, Britain and Australia.

CPs for VPS Hosting

The domain names and the content on the virtual private web hosting server are manipulated via a website hosting Control Panel user interface, similar to a conventional shared web hosting plan's. The difference is that with website hosting plans, clients get one specific CP, while with a VPS hosting account, hosting providers usually offer a couple of website hosting Control Panels to select from, and the more advanced users can install and make use of the web hosting Control Panel they desire. Certain virtualization panels support installing a hosting CP through them to make it simpler for the client. Sadly, most CPs are not cost-free. Some of those demand a monthly fee (cPanel requests $13/month, check, while others request a licence fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that limit the amount of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we speak of website hosting CP-supplied VPS hosting, it's worth pointing out that, by default, all VPS hosting packages provided by us comprise the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It offers unlimited hosted domain quotas. Hepsia comes at no additional license charge, therefore the monthly price of the virtual private web server hosting account chosen by the user does not alter. What's more, Hepsia perhaps has the best Domain Manager on the web hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Hosting Packages

The web hosting CP tool enables customers to administer domain name, files, databases, FTP and mail accounts, to monitor bandwidth and load logs and to watch elaborate statistics about the used up and the available system resources. Like the virtualization consoles, the web hosting Control Panels are designed to work under a given OS. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most widely used website hosting CPs, functions solely under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is designed by the very same firm, performs only under Windows. Other web hosting CPs like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several Operating Systems. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of given website hosting CPs over others is that they have several levels of control - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a different set of functionalities governing the levels underneath, so it is easy to create a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by reselling web hosting packages to other individuals. As customers will keep track of what amount of the system resources is consumed, but will not observe the real numbers, even a small VPS web hosting account will suffice to open a small-sized shared web hosting website hosting company and collect capital.

The VPS Hosting: an Autonomous, Low-Priced Solution

A VPS hosting is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support websites such as a very popular web store or a huge corporate website. As its administration is simple, it is the preferred choice of both novices and accomplished users.
